This dazzling blue crystal looks sparkling and new, but it is actually about 4.4 billion years old, making it one of the oldest known pieces of Earth's crust. The zircon crystal from the Jack Hills in Western Australia is less than a millimeter wide, but it gives us a huge insight into the history of our planet.
Rock around the clock: zircon crystal is oldest piece of Earth. Scientists using two different age-determining techniques have shown that a tiny zircon crystal found on a sheep ranch in western Australia is the oldest known piece of our planet, dating to 4.4 billion years ago.

Star Birth Drama Captured by Giant Radio Telescope (Photos)
08-21-13 Telescope in Chile Captures Dramatic Moment of Star Birth ~ This is one baby picture you won't want to miss. The ALMA telescope in Chile has captured a close-up of the glowing material spewing from a newborn star. The stunning images show material streaming from the baby star at incredible speed, glowing as it plows into the surrounding gas and dust. Astronomers say these illuminated jets are spewing out faster than ever measured before and are more energetic than previously thought.
Giant radio telescope in Chile captures amazing new views of a baby star lighting up an interstellar cloud with jets of gas streaking through deep space at record-breaking speeds.
This unprecedented image of Herbig-Haro object HH 46/47 combines radio observations acquired with the Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) with much shorter wavelength visible light observations from ESO’s New Technology Telescope (NTT). The ALMA observations (orange and green, lower right) of the newborn star reveal a large energetic jet moving away from us, which in the visible is hidden by dust and gas. To the left (in pink and purple) the visible part of the jet is seen, streaming partly towards us. Credit: ESO/ALMA (ESO/NAOJ/NRAO)/H. Arce. Acknowledgements: Bo Reipurth
